I think this works well on thick hair - it gives my hair a certain stiffness that prevents frizz and means I need to use less, if any, product when shaping it. Wish I could purchase in a larger size - is a little expensive!
I adore this shampoo. It cleans my hair without stripping it and des in fact make it super shiny like the name suggest. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't help out with my frizzy curls problem. I still have the same amount of frizz that I had before I tried this shampoo. Other than that it does the job and smells amazing.
I found this shampoo was too expensive for how much I need to use in my hair. My hair is shoulder length or so but it took way too much product to clean my whole head. It smells delicious and natural. I am fairly allergic to most beauty products with scents or harsh chemicals but this one did not bother me and I really liked that. The only issue was the price in relation to product. Nobody wants to pay more for something when they don't have to!
My favorite shampoo. Maybe some girls are not accustomed to a product that almost does not foam, foam is an additive which does not contain this shampoo.
The smell is addictive, not aggressive or artificial as some products are.
I bought it because my stylist recommended I used sulfate free shampoo. I have two months using it and each week I notice more improvement in the health of my hair and scalp. Now I have no excess bait, or dandruff.
This is my third bottle and would buy it again.
1. The reason some people have greasy hair is because this shampoo is free from ALL harsh agents that dry your scalp out. Your head produces more oil to make up the drying agents you put on it regularly. It's probably not the shampoo that gives you greasy hair, it's the fact that your head isn't used to not having the crap dried out of it and is still adjusting. It may take a while to do so, so if you can't go a few weeks with oily hair, this shampoo may not be for you, at least until you wean yourself off the harsh agents, which would take longer to do gradually.
2. The reason it doesn't lather richly is the same as #1. There are no harsh agents in it to cause it to lather up. Just because a product has more bubbles and suds does NOT mean it cleans your hair better and just because it does not lather well, does NOT mean that it isn't cleaning your hair.
I just really hate that this shampoo gets such bad reviews because I'm afraid Burt's Bees will take it off the market and add chemicals to it to please a crowd who is complaining because they're uninformed, as opposed to complaining about a product that's actually bad. This was the only one I found in my hometown that has no sulfates, silicones, or other harsh, damaging chemicals and I'd prefer to not have to order shampoo online. Even other shampoos that make this claim aren't actually sulfate/cone free.
I recently decided to give up using shampoo and water-wash my hair only. After my hair transitioned through its oily phase, I found my hair was healthier and fuller than before, but unfortunately, I learned that without shampoo, it will never have that fluffy, squeaky clean feeling near the scalp; it's not oily to the touch or anything,it just always feels a little heavy, like second-day hair. So I decided to look for a chemical free shampoo to indulge myself with maybe once or twice a month - chemical free so that I won't have to transition my scalp all over again and go through another greasy month. I can do the same with baking soda, but if I have to add something to my hair, I'd rather just splurge on something that smells nice :)
After using this shampoo, my hair is not greasy at all, and it feels light and weightless near my scalp again, like back when I was using shampoo regularly. I don't need it, but it's just a nice luxury to indulge in, and I still get the improved benefits of when I quit shampoo so this is like the best of both worlds for me. And I have fairly normal hair - straight, medium thickness, average amount, so I can say that as long as you aren't using too many drying agents on your hair, you don't need to have dry or curly hair to benefit from this shampoo.
This is terrible. I was so excited. I have long, wavy and fine, brown hair. It smells okay, but it left my hair greasy and flat and stringy. Not to mention coarse. Don't be fooled by the no sulfates.
This is by far the worst shampoo I've ever tried. I was looking for a shampoo that didnt have sodium lauryl sulfate as it breaks me out and so tried this, hoping it would work well. It claimed to add shine and reduce frizz, which seemed like a bonus to my dry curly hair. this did not add shine, it added GREASE. It honestly felt and looked like i had poured a bottle of grease in my hair. My hair was so lank and felt heavy and disgusting, like i hadn't washed it in weeks. It lathers horribly (which i guess is expected since its sulfate free) and definately doesn't smell of mangoes (instead, this weird cheap citrus smell). Also, it made my scalp feel very itchy and not clean at all! All in all, i will not be using this ever again. Just annoyed I wasted £8 on a bottle of shampoo when i can buy one for half the price that works far better.
Unfortunately, this product did not work for me. It makes my scalp VERY irritated. My scalp is itchy, flaky and has red spots all over the place. It does clean hair very well, though, so that's why I gave it two stars. It doesn't lather well either, in my opinion. I had to shampoo twice or just use a lot of product at once. Otherwise, I will not repurchase and I will not continue using it. But the conditioner is a blessing! It works wonders on my hair, and I will review that separately.
I love Burt's Bees, so I was very happy with this product. This is now my go to shampoo. I have very brittle, curly hair and I don't shampoo very often. I use this for build up, etc. It works great and doesn't further damage my hair like other shampoos. It smells awesome!!! Love, love, love. High quality, low price.
Really impressed! I checked this out as one of the products tested by Prevention magazine. I thought why not benefit from some one else's trial and error (Allure's endorsements cannot be trusted as they are too beholden to advertisers). This really did deliver shiny hair and I thought only a conditioner could do that. I paired it with their recommendation for conditioner which is Clear Conditioner for strengthening and I have officially walked away from WEN. The shampoo is moisturizing and does not contain sulfates. Honestly, I would never have picked up this brand and thought that the Clear Conditioner (which has to be massaged into the roots since it contains zinc to strengthen hair) was just a gimmick. Thank you Prevention for figuring this all out. WEN kept my highlighted hair moisturized but it does build up and while I didn't care what the cost was, these two products are just a fraction of that price and they are available in the drug store. My hair has a lot of body, its shiny and moisturized and CLEAN in a way that WEN didn't achieve.
